The Court, having read and considered the motion and plaintiff's declaration filed in support thereof, finds the matter suitable for decision on the moving papers, declines to set a hearing thereon, deems the matter submitted, and rules as follows: As noted, the motion is based on the conduct of counsel in defending against plaintiff's claims. Although plaintiff attributes the ultimate result of the litigation, specifically, a jury verdict in favor of defendant, to what plaintiff describes as "misconduct" (see Mot. at 3:13), "lying and stealing" (see id. at 19:12), and "conspiracy" (see Haile Decl. Ex. 1 at 1), TSEGAI HAILE, v.

Rather, the record reflects no more than a dispute as to the events in question and both parties' efforts to convince the Court and jury as to the merits of their respective positions. Accordingly, the motion for sanctions is hereby DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: April 27, 2010 MAXINE M. CHESNEY United States District Judge 2
